The 7th graders have just finished a challenging perspective unit.  They learned the basics of one-point perspective, including how to find a vanishing point, how to draw a 3D object in perspective, as well as observing the difference a high and low perspective makes on objects.

Some great perspective websites:

visualizing perspective
an interactive quiz about perspective
how to draw in perspective

The students created a 3D space, either indoors or outdoors, with all lines leading to the vanishing point.  These drawings were finished in watercolor and colored pencil.  Some students took pictures in their homes, and created prints from these, to highlight the difference a high and low perspective can make.

Some finished perspective drawings and high/low perspective prints:
